"The thing that makes me hate the whole modern shopping experience, i.e. Wal-Mart and any number of soulless, sterile, degraded (I'll stop here because my list is quite long) stores is that nothing there is special. In big box stores, you can look down an aisle and see neatly conforming sections of the same mass-produced stuff organized in tight rows - not unlike the view of a suburban landscape."

"For me, the strip is the tightly controlled stream of products offered to us under the guise of choice. Go to any strip or shopping district, in any town, in Canada, in the US, and you'll find the same mothership of cloned box stores, food chains and movie theatres has landed to suck the unsuspecting locals of their individuality."

Darren, if you don't like these stores then don't shop there! Mind your own business and let other people live their lives!

As for the skirt that the waitress bought at the thrift shop, could it not have been originally purchased at a big box store? Perhaps Wal-Mart? If so may God have mercy on you.
